Description

Pokémon Rumble U is the third installment in the Pokémon Rumble series. The story involves a Pokémon Toy Shop that sells Capsules containing Toy Pokémon. A number of these capsules are accidentally dropped into a river, which carries them far away. The Toy Pokémon inside decide to find their way back to the Toy Shop. However, their progress is quickly impeded by other Toy Pokémon who are itching to fight.

Like the original, but unlike the second, this game features multiplayer of up to 4 players. There is a major difference between this game and its predecessors. This game focuses completely on battling: unlike the first two installments, there is no adventure mode. However, there are various improvements. All Pokémon from the first five generations are available, from Bulbasaur to Genesect. Up to 100 Pokémon can battle at once. Also, this game is the first Wii U title to utilize the console's NFC technology. Pokémon figures can be purchased from retailers and scanned into the system via the GamePad, importing the Pokémon into the game. These imported Pokémon can be customized using money earned from battles.
